Seamlessly integrating VoiceThread into your Learning Management System (LMS) is the key to user happiness. VoiceThread works well within a broad range of systems, but the most powerful option is the standard developed by the IMS Global Learning Consortium called Learning Tools Interoperability (LTI). LTI allows VoiceThread to integrate into most major Learning Management Systems, including but not limited to Blackboard, Sakai, Angel, Canvas, Desire2Learn, BrainHoney and Moodle. Single Sign-onAll users access VoiceThread with a single click. Through LTI, VoiceThread will know the context of the user from the LMS, and an account will be created for that person. First name, last name, email address, and role information can all be passed to VoiceThread through LTI. Course EnrollmentStudents and instructors are enrolled in their courses automatically. Instantaneous IntegrationSetup for IT teams is quick and simple. * VoiceThread integrates with a broad range of information systems.

VoiceThread Extends the Classroom with Interactive Multimedia Albums Bill Ferriter knew his sixth-grade language arts and social studies students spent time online outside of class, surfing the Web and instant messaging. So when he discovered he could engage his kids online in a collaborative, multimedia slide show called a VoiceThread, he decided to see if he could use it to, as he puts it, "steal some of their online minutes." "The answer was a resounding yes," says the teacher at Salem Middle School, in Salem, North Carolina. VoiceThreads might best be described as interactive media albums. They are essentially online slide shows of images, documents, or videos that enable viewers to comment on any slide (or at any point in the video) by typing, recording an audio or video comment, or drawing on the image itself. Teachers have been early adopters of the easy-to-learn technology, which has led the company to launch, a secure site just for educators and their students, says VoiceThreads cofounder Ben Papell.
